Hold on, I've got another question...
Q. What should be on the postcard?
A. Anything that you like, from a statement to a poem to a doodle to a design. And you don’t have to be an artist!
Q. Is this a non-profit?
A. Yes this is an art demonstration and if any profits are raised they’ll go to art/vote enrollment charities/initiatives.
Q. Is this open to the rest of the world?
A. Yes, anyone can do it.
Q. Can I still send cards after the election?
A. Yes, keep buying stamps and sending cards.
I'm in... what's that address again?
